Swift Stables is a fantastic place to stay. The location is beautiful and very peaceful. The house is very clean and tidy with lots of room and even a toy chest full of games for the kids.. My 3 children aged 23 months, 4 and 6 enjoyed watching the animals in the fields and loved the garden with it trampoline, slide and see-saw it a lovely space and most importantly very safe. There plenty to do in the surrounding area and we took a trip to Woburn Safari which was fantastic. Nick is a very friendly helpful and informative. Overall fantastic holiday and we will definitely be back Many thanks

We booked Swift Stables as a base for attending a family event. Our first impression was that we had found an absolute gem, the house was extremely well equipped and comfortable with lots of extra touches such as a trampoline in the garden and a toy box which our grandchildren loved. The setting was beautiful and peaceful and we enjoyed watching the horses and goats in the field. The owner Nick was extremely helpful and made sure that we could make contact with him if we had any problems, which we didnt. The area is beautiful and we enjoyed exploring particularly at Foxton Locks which is close by. We would definitely book again.

Converted stables into a luxurious single level house. Looking out over the Leicestershire countryside. A short walk to a wonderful village pub which sells local food, sublime. A short drive into Market Harbourgh where you can find all you need. Highly recommended.

If you need a stay away from it all in a peaceful part of England then this is it. Wonderful owners flexible to suit you. 2 great big bedrooms with double beds (one with views onto the countryside) and a 3rd with 2good singles. Enormous kitchen and bathroom with a large sitting dinning room looking out on the countryside. 300m is the village of Mowsley with a stunning pub/restaurant, well worth a visit. Market harbour is 15 mins away for shopping with a lively high street. Recommended for a family getaway at any time of year.

We enjoyed a three week holiday at Swift Stables with glorious weather meaning we could make full use of the bi-fold doors in the bedroom and the living room. The location is to die for with views across the fields where you can witness the most amazing sunrises and sunsets. The cottage has everything you could ever need including a fully fitted kitchen with a washing machine and tumble dryer, not to mention wifi which my teenage son cannot live without! There is a large chest of toys and games plus a varied selection of books, something for everyone. There is plenty of living space both indoors and outside and with the garden area being fully enclosed, it made it the perfect place to play for my 3 year old grand daughter who came to stay for a few days. She loved the trampoline and the sandpit and was very happy when one day a small slide, seesaw and rocking toy appeared in the garden, placed there by Nick who thought she might like them! The owners, Nick and Becky were so nice, wanting to make sure that everything was ok for us and happy to offer suggestions of places to go or where to find things. The cottage is perfectly postioned for exploring with the beautiful town of Market Harborough only 7 miles away and Lutterworth even closer. Leicester is only a half hour drive away with plenty of history to discover including the final resting place of Richard III in the cathedral. Nearby Foxton Locks is well worth a visit where you can spend hours just watching the decorative canal boats going through the series of hand operated locks. There is no shortage of country pubs within the surrounding villages offering excellent food and drink. As far as buying groceries there is a Morrisons and a Waitrose in Lutterworth and a small but well stocked Springfields supermarket in Husbands Bosworth, most of the other major supermarkets can be found in Market Harborough. To summarise, as well as being in an ideal location for exploring, Swift Stables is the perfect place to get away from it all and just stop - a real retreat!

We spent our Christmas at Swift Stables and had such a wonderful time. The property is located in wonderful, rural settings, very peaceful, and is a great base for long walks and exploring the countryside. The property itself is very comfortable and excellent for families (we stayed with a 2 week old baby and a three year old). There were many nice little touches including a toy box full of toys, which my daughter was very sad to say goodbye to, and the fact that the owners had put up a christmas tree for our stay. We also loved the floor to ceiling windows in both the living room and the front bedroom, offering beautiful views out over the countryside. The kitchen was well equipped and we had no problems cooking there, and the property was always nice and warm during our stay. I would highly recommend this property, and hope to return in the future.
